The Art of Shading with Desere Mayo

Community Room B and Kitchen
Saturday, Jun 22, 2024, 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Join local artist Desere Mayo for a workshop on shading. We will take abstract artwork and learn how to make it pop using different techniques of shading, colors, and blending. 

If you missed the first class you will still be able to participate - just using a different picture. Sketch pads, rulers, and pencils will be provided, but attendees are welcome to bring their own supplies if they prefer. 

This workshop is suitable for ages 8+; children who are 10 years old or younger should be accompanied by an adult.

Space is limited and registration is required for this event. Please register each member of your party individually.

Want to continue learning with Desere? We've got another class planned for Saturday, June 1 at the same time focused on abstract art. LEARN MORE + SIGN UP


About the artist: Desere has the gift of creativity and imagination and it shows in her work. She has been perfecting her craft since an early age and has touched hundreds of people in the process. Every picture drawn is handmade and no filters or edit software were used to create the artwork. 

With a keen attention to detail, Desere has done everything from painting both original and popular children’s artwork on the halls and walls of both homes and businesses alike; creating graphics, signs, paintings of houses, face painting, and magazines for professional organizations as well as for intimate occasions such as weddings, and is always looking to expand her craft.
